FULL-RIDE MERIT SCHOLAR

During my time in college, I was connected with likeminded students and mentors willing to help. Let's do something good, and let's do it together.

 PERSONAL Values 

 If it's fun, I'm in. At home    cooking challenge, getting    inside a 6-ft balloon, a 2-    month backpacking trip    around Southeast Asia, the    answer is yes. Now let's figure  out how to make it happen. 

EXPERIENCES

I WANT TO SHARE MY STORY TO INSPIRE ACTION

I want to teach others how to take the first step.

I want today's success stories to know how to support the next generation.

I want society to understand the importance of inclusion.

I want everyone to feel empowered to make a difference.

3rd Grade

I switched schools, and my first friends were girls that each had a various disability. That didn't matter, we were just friends.

 

We played together at recess, carpooled to dance, and all liked the color purple.

Growing up with them, they made an impact on my life that no one else could.

Today

80% of adults with disabilities are unemployed. This isn't okay.

 

During my freshman year in college, I wanted to change this.

Today, I am a founder and the CEO of 321 Coffee, a coffee shop and roaster that employs over 30 adults with disabilities.

The best part? The girls I met in 3rd grade now all work at 321 Coffee.
